're going to be in trouble. >> the next story we're about to do on gun control i think is a part of this conversation, but first, joe, how important is what colin powell said? he is someone who has endorsed president obama in the past. >> he has. >> he has shown frustration in the party, and it's not like he is mitch mcconnell or someone else saying we need to change. isn't he in a different category, or is this significant? >> it's extraordinarily significant because yes, he supported barack obama two times. but there are a lot of other republicans that are required for a majority, that are required for republicans to win the white house that are a lot like colin powell, that just look at the republican party and think that they've lost their way. i've got to say, if you look at how the republican party reacted the first time president obama was elected, i wrote a book that basically could be boiled down to don't lose your -- al roker at the white house. >> exactly. >> they didn't listen. they went out, they engaged in birtherism, they called the president a racist who hated all
and state levels. most of the individuals involved in this project were prominent gun-control activists and lobbyists." do you to think the nra will be able to support the next person obama puts up? guest: probably not. they opposed the bush administration's nominee for the atf, mike sullivan. host: and democrats? guest: yes. so it's not about to is in the white house. the nra has an issue with the leadership of atf. they have a problem with the inspection system and the way in which a investigations are done. in this case, there were focusing on a couple statements he might made in a speech. in their view, crimes of association with groups they don't like. i don't see that changing any time soon. host: thomas is up next on burlington, iowa, on the democratic line. good morning. caller: good morning. i just wanted him to tell the people when fast and furious started, what president started it, and when it started, and what has been going on since then. i was an nra member. i'm almost 60 years old. since all this has been going , i stopped my membership. i'm a hunter. we don't have guns
here. >>> president obama talking about one of the most controversial issues that any leader has to deal with. and that, of course, is gun control. and in his speech just moments ago, he invoked the newtown shooting massacre and he talked about the push to tighten gun restrictions. here's what he said. >> what's uppermost in my mind is making sure that i'm honest with the american people and with members of congress about what i think will work, what i think is something that will make a difference and so repeat what i've said earlier, if there is a step that we can take that will save even one child from what happened in newtown, we should take that step. >> i want to bring in our deborah feyerick. deb, so the president already said that joe biden, the vice president's task force says he's gotten a list of recommendations. we expect that there are going to be more specifics coming out later in the week. but there are two things that he seemed to indicate that he could do by executive order. and that is, one, try to track those guns that get in the hands of criminals or those who
and the president are not finding much common ground on gun control. major garrett is at the white house. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, norah and charlie. the white house has just announced president obama will hold what the white house describes as the last press conference of his first term in just over an hour in the east room here at the white house. many issues face the president, but he's going to focus in his opening remarks on the debt ceiling. of course, also gun control and the chuck hagel for defense secretary nomination might come up. after a week of white house gun violence meetings, it's not clear if the president will seek to reinstate a ban on assault style rifles. even if he does opposition is hardening. >> do you think an assault weapons ban can pass the congress? >> no. >> do you think it should? >> no. >> reporter: west virginia democrat joe manchin, who sounded open to new gun control measures immediately after the newtown massacre now wants a slow moving washington commission. >> if you just want gun bans you're wrong. >> what do
bills to ban or control the sale of guns or ammunition. several senate bills are on the way. but all are far from a done deal. in his first term, president obama passed no laws limiting gun use. then sandy hook happened, a day mr. obama called the worst of his presidency. even before he is sworn in again, he's expected to review proposals from his new gun task force. >> this is a team that has a very specific task to pull together real reforms right now. >> reporter: the white house is focused on a wide ranging plan involving more than just firearms and ammunition. on the table, reinstate the expired ban on assault weapons and limit magazines that have more than ten rounds. close the so-called gun show loophole to mandate background checks for all gun buyers. ensure better access to mental health care. improve school security. and review the cultural impact of violent movies and video games. vice president joe biden says it is possible the president could also act unilaterally on his own. >> the president is going to act, there are executive orders, executive action that can be taken
. >> president obama in what will be his final news conference, and we apologize, though, it was beyond our control for something a lot of people found frustrating, and that is our inability to hear the follow-up questions, lack of a microphone. usually there is one on a boom especially to pick up the front row after they use the hand mic. again, beyond our control. we were struggling to hear along with our viewers. and in the front row, by our count, the asker of about 11 or 12 questions today, chuck todd. chuck todd, interesting there at the end, kind of a full-throated defense of himself, his diversity. we've been hearing privately the president has been telling people just calm down and wait until you see the entire picture of our team, but also having to declare himself a friendly guy on matters of policy, including your dozen or so questions, where do you think the ball was advanced today? >> well, what was interesting was how resigned the president seemed to be that a government shutdown is probably coming. he all but talked about it in terms of, well, it looks like the votes are the
